In deep appreciation of his twenty-four years of service to Wrentham 
High School, we, the class of 1954, do hereby dedicate our year book to 
Mr. Gilbert Rishton. 




C^clitoriai 



For sixty years, Wrentham High, you have watched time pass through your 
doors. You have seen generations enter and leave year after year. And now, 
we, the class of 1954, must leave you for the last time. For years we have come 
and gone and lived as part of you. Now we must leave your sheltering arms 
and go on our own into the world. But you have helped to prepare us for this 
adventure, and although we leave you now, your memory shall linger with us 
for ever. 

William Lynch 
Ronald Shepherd

CHAPTER I 

On the morning of September 6, 1950, a group of students entered the study hall of 
Wrentham High School and gazed at their strange surroundings and the new teaehers. The 
freshman elass had arrived! Mr. Pagos, our class adviser, greeted us and helped us make out 
our class schedule. We held an election of officers in which Bill Lynch was chosen president; 
Ronnie Shepherd, vice-president; Judy Littlefield, secretary; and Phil Scott, treasurer. Not 
to be outdone by the upper-classmen, on March 30 we had a successful record hop, "Freshman 
Frolic Dance". On June 1 we had loads of fun putting on a show and dance for our parents. 

CHAPTER II 

In the sophomore year our class adviser was Mrs. Parise, and our officers were Bill Lynch, 
president; Ronald Shepherd, vice-president; Joan Driggers, secretary; and Gilly Rishton, 
treasurer. That fall four of our girls, Enid Marshall, Joan Driggers, Carole Taylor, and 
Beverley Harper, became cheerleaders. On October 26 we sponsored the "Spook Dance". 
In March our terrific group of cheerleaders won their tournament at the Vogel School. On 
May 9, the dancing couples were charmed by the oriental mode of our "Nipponese Seku". 

CHAPTER III 

The class leaders of our junior year were Ronnie Shepherd, president; Enid Marshall, 
vice-president; Beverley Harper, secretary; and Bill Lynch, treasurer. Mrs. Viall was our 
elass adviser. That fall we sponsored two dances, the "Junior Jump" and the "Pumpkin 
Prom". In December The Choral Art Society, under the direction of Mr. Sullivan, presented 
"Christmas in Song". Judy Littlefield was one of the soloists and Diana Jenkins was an 
accompanist. On February 14, Phil Scott and Beverley Harper were crowned king and 
queen of the first Winter Carnival Ball. In March the cheerleaders, with Enid Marshall as 
captain, took fifth place at a cheering tournament in Spencer. The first public speaking con- 
test, sponsored by the Holly Club, was also held that month. Shirley Prue and our own 
"Shep" won first and second prizes respectively. April 10 we presented our class play, "Come 
Rain or Shine", directed by Mrs. Viall. The cast included Enid Marshall, Judy Turner, Joan 
Driggers, Gail LaDue, Ronnie Shepherd, Gilly Rishton, Pat Robson, Bill Lynch, Phil Scott, 
Bob Whyte, Dorothy Lewis, Beverley Harper, Judy Littlefield, Kay Laushway, and Jean 
Richards. In May we sponsored a switch-around dance, "Ladies' Choice", to which the girls 
invited the boys. Mrs. Viall took our U. S. Histoiy elass on a field trip around Boston to 
visit many of the historic places there. The magic night of the year was June 5, our junior 
prom. It left memories in our hearts which will never be forgotten. 

CHAPTER IV 

Our senior year! With Mrs. Capron as our class adviser, we elected Ronnie Shepherd, 
president; Billy Lynch, vice-president; Jean Richards, secretary; and Gilly Rishton, treasurer. 
September 25, decked out in black-face, we presented our minstrel show, "Land 'o Cotton", 
with the help of Mrs. Viall and Mr. Sullivan. Gilly Rishton served as interlocutor and 
Ely Intlehouse, Judy Turner, Ronnie Shepherd, Bill Lynch, Judy Littlefield, and Phil Scott 
were the endmen. On October 16 we sponsored the "Harvest Hop" dance. On November 18 
and 14 we presented our senior play, "Once in Every Family" directed by Mrs. Viall. Enid 
Marshall, Judy Turner, Joan Driggers, Gail LaDue, Ronnie Shepherd, Gilly Rishton, Pat 
Robson, Bill Lynch, Phil Scott, Bob Whyte, Kenneth Olson, Dorothy Lewis, Beverley Harper, 
Harold Paine, Judy Littlefield, and David Libbey made up the cast. WHDH disc jockey 
Bob Clayton paid us a visit on December 11 at our record hop. The Choral Art Society 
presented its second concert "Christmas in Many Lands". In January our Problems of 
Democracy class toured the Herald-Traveler building and station WCOP in Boston. The 
juniors and seniors went to see the spectacular "Cinerama" at the Boston Theater. On 
January 20 the cheerleaders were hosts at the second Southeastern Massachusetts Cheer- 
leaders' Tournament held at the King Philip. On February 20 the second Winter Carnival 
Ball was held. A junior couple, Carl Schwalbe and Shirley Prue, were crowned king and 
queen. Gilly Rishton and Mary Sprague were their attendants from our class. On March 8 
our "Problems" class had the privilege of being the first group to tour the new prison in 
Norfolk. On March 19 the second annual public speaking contest was held. Judy Littlefield. 
Ronnie Shepherd, and Sarah Stabenfeldt were awarded the first, the second, and the third 
prizes in order. On April 19 we left for New York where we spent four wonderful days 
seeing the sights and depleting our treasury. A week after the junior prom came the most 
wonderful night of all — our graduation!! With singing hearts and tear filled eyes, we 
received our diplomas, and went out to meet the world.

May 17, 1964 
Dear Diary: 

Today Jean Watson was married! Tlie reception was held at Libbeys Manor on Route 1A. 
Kenny Olsen built it five years before, and it has become a very popidar place with David 
Libbey as its manager. 

Yes, it seemed very nice to see all my class again after so many years. They are doing 
SO well. 

Diana Jenkins played the organ at the church. Jean was very fortunate to get Diana 
who just returned from England, where she performed five concerts at the London Palladium 
and before Queen Elizabeth. 

The church and reception hall were beautifully decorated with flowers from Gilbert's. 
Gilbert ru:is several very successful greenhouses in Pawnticket. He is quite a family man, 
having six children to date. 

Gee! The decorations at Libbey's Manor were absolutely stupendous! There were many 
beautiful pictures on the walls. All of it was modern art. Joan Driggers has definitely made 
a name for herself with her art work. She married only recently to her high-school sweetheart 
and they have settled down in Circle Drive. 

There were three sailors present — Billy Lynch, Harold Paine, and Bob Whyte. Billy told 
me that he is a twenty-year man. He is a chief petty officer now and expects to go up for 
another rate next month. These fellows have been all over the United States and Europe. 
Harold met "Mimi", his wife, while he was in France for two years. Bob, on the other hand, 
is eager to be discharged so that he can come back and marry his high-school sweetheart to 
whom he is engaged. 

All Jean's co-workers took a short leave from their offices in the Empire State Building. 
They flew out to Wrentham in order to attend the wedding. Martha, Marsha, and Mary were 
there. Mary is a private secretary to the Mayor of New' York. She married a professor 
at Boston University. 

I will never forget Ely, who was so much fun in school. He now has his own swing band. 
"Harmonic Hepcats", and Judy Littlefield is star vocalist. I understand that she has been 
given a screen test and will soon be out in Hollywood where she can emote as well as sing. 

Yes, each and everyone in the class of 1954 has done well for himself. There were a few 
who couldn't be at the wedding. Shep was unable to attend. He was in Washington before 
the Senate making a speech. I hear he married a beautiful platinum blonde from Wrentham. 

It seems that many of our classmates have gone to work in New York. Let's see, Martha, 
Marsha, and Mary. Oh, yes! Bev has an excellent position as head buyer for Macy's. She has 
done wonderfully. She married directly after college to a promising author. 

Gail ( LaDue ) Brown was at the reception with her two adorable sons, one ol whom, 
eoincidently, is also in her third grade class. Gail is still teaching at Wrentham and is very 
happy in her work. Dottie Lewis taught physical education for a while, but she is happily 
married and spends much of her time cooking for her husband and family. 

Phil Scott is the only single fellow in our class and isn't even contemplating marriage. 
He is too rapt up in his work as a mechanical engineer to be interested in women. 

Joyce wasn't at the wedding because she is stationed in Germany with the 1st Marine 
Division in which she is 1st Sergeant. 

Enid is a clerical psychologist at a college in Maine. She is very successful and enjoys 
her work immensely. She has been married for three years and has a lovely daughter. 

Patty Robson and Judy Turner were telling me that they are nurses at Sturdy Hospital 
in Attleboro. Judy expects to attend school some more and then go into psychiatric nursing. 
Patty has come a long way at Sturdy and expects to be promoted to Superintendent of Nurses. 

I was very much surprised to hear that Jean Richards married her boss. She was private 
secretary for a criminal lawyer in California. 

Tomorrow in school I have to practice on a mouse for a heart operation, so I must 
go to bed.

On September 18, 1953 the Junior Class held the first dance of the year, 
called "School Daze". Then on October 23 they had another dance; this one 
was called "Fall Festival". On April 9 they are holding their class play "Meet 
Corliss Archer". We want to wish the Juniors the best of luck in this and we 
hope that it is a big success.

The most important work of the Athletic Association was clone during the 
three meetings this year. The Constitution started by last year's officers was 
taken up again, worked on, and passed. Thus, this year's officers leave the 
association with a firm foundation on which to base its activities. 

The first meeting was held November 6 to distribute athletic tickets and 
establish the dates for the ticket drive. Huge posters and an assembly started 
the campaign off with much enthusiasm. 

At a second meeting, held December 1, almost at the close of the association 
ticket drive, work on the Athletic Association Constitution was begun. The 
work was finished and the Constitution passed by the association on March 15.

The boys' basketball team started practicing early in October and were eager 
to start playing ball. We got off to a poor start but came on strong at the end 
of the season and ended with five wins and fifteen losses. In our last game of 
the season the varsity took a three point victory from the faculty. This victory 
pleased the senior boys very much. Although the team will lose five players 
through graduation, the seniors feel Wrentham will have a good basketball team 
next year and wish them luck. 

Coach Toner also plans to have a baseball team this year.

The girls' teams were well under way with a straight non-defeat for the 
second team and two victories for the first team in the first half of a twelve game 
schedule. In the second half of the season the second team continued their 
good work, losing only one game; and the first team spruced up to a four to two 
victory. 

The teams enjoyed a victorious season, thanks to good teamwork and ex- 
cellent coaching by Mrs. MacLeod. 

High scorers were Bev Harper of the first team, 116 points, and Delight 
Harmon running a close second with 114 points. On the second team Shirley 
Giannetti finished first with 110 points and Sally Weber, second with 105 points. 

Again we turn in our uniforms, winding up anther basketball season, with 
the hope that Mrs. MacLeod's teams next year will be undefeated.

(Absent: Anna Fuimara). 



The fall of '53 brought with it the question in main minds as to who would 
be chosen as substitute cheerleaders. From those who tried out three were 
chosen by the student body, faculty, and present cheerleaders: Anna Fuimara. 
Lynne Ross, and Delight Harmon. Practices began in October and continued 
throughout the basketball season as time permitted. 

We held a tournament at the King Philip Ballroom on January 20, 1954, in 
which we did not compete but gave an exhibition. The first prize winners in the 
first and second classes were Bellingham and Walpole, respectively. 

Wrentham competed against fifteen schools in a tournament at Spencer on 
March 26, 1954. We proudly returned to Wrentham carrying the trophy of 
second place.

The Winter Carnival took place on February 19 and 20 under the supervision 
of Mr. Aucoin. 

On Friday night, February 19, 1954, a basketball game was held between 
the faculty and the bovs' Varsity. 

An Ice Skating contest and a Snow Sculpturing contest were scheduled to 
be included in the Winter Carnival, but because of weather conditions it was 
impossible for the contests to be held. 

On Saturday night, February 20, 1954, The Winter Carnival Ball took place 
in the Vogel School Auditorium. Shirley Prue and Carl Schwalbe were elected 
King and Queen of the ball. The attendants for the Queen were Mary Sprague, 
Phyllis Manchester, and Janet Farrar, and for the King, Gilbert Rishton, James 
Bowers, and Michael Rishton. 

The King and Queen were each presented with engraved trophies. The 
attendants of the royal couple were presented with gifts; the girls received mesh 
bags, and the boys received leather wallets. 

The Winter Carnival turned out to be a great success for all who attended. 



First row: Richard Carlson, Anna Fuimara, Philip Wood, Mary Sprague, Mr. Aucoin, David 
Libbey, Karen Fahlgren, Anthony Macaione. Second row: Michael Walker, Betty Moriarty,

As the high school spirit increased, the faculty spirit increased. The "old" men 
from the faculty formed an organized team and played five games. They did quite 
well for themselves winning three games and losing two. The team was composed 
of the following four veterans from the previous year: Ed Morgan, Fred Sullivan, 
Fred Delany, and Al Aucoin. This year's team also boasted three very promising 
rookies. Bill Toner, John Petit, and Rnss Lodi. The team held several practice 
sessions and then were off and running as they beat the high school varsity by 
seven points. The big boys were really rounding into shape, and in their next 
outing against the Foxboro High School Faculty Team, they really turned on 
the steam and won handily by a large margin. The old fellows then took a short 
rest before taking on the Foxboro Faculty again on the Foxboro court. The old 
fellows couldn't find their shooting eves, and their undefeated string was broken 
as Foxboro won easily. Again the "old" men took another rest after this game 
before meeting the high flying high school Varsity boys who had revenge in 
their hearts. The two teams clashed on the eve of the Winter Carnival, and the 
young boys almost ran the "old" men out of the hall as the Varsity won quite 
easily by a three-point margin. It was a hard loss for the old fellows, but a great 
emotional victory for the Varsity. The faculty also played the High School 
Alumni and won easily by some forty points with Big Ed Morgan setting a faculty 
scoring record of 39 points in that one ball game. The faculty team was weak- 
ened somewhat, however, as Fred Delaney retired from active competition at 
mid-season. After such a successful and tiring season, the old fellows just climbed 
back into their wheel-chairs and went merrily on teaching school. But they may 
be back next year; remember, old basketball players never die; they sink into 
the court.

"The Choral Art Society" is the musical organization for all the musically 
interested students in our high school. This group is under the direction of 
Mr. Fred Sullivan with the cooperation of the officers: Enid Marshall, President; 
Diana Jenkins, Vice-President; Joan Driggers, Secretary; Dorothy Lewis, Student 
Manager; and Patricia Quinn, Treasurer. Within the choral group are three 
specialty acts: the "Modernets", the "Choralets", and the "Lucky Thirteen". The 
accompanists for the society are Marcia Salemme and Diana Jenkins. Elin 
Youngdahl also helped at the piano in the "Christmas in Many Lands" concert 
which was a wonderful success. 

The plans for the spring are to have a "Pops Concert" sometime early in 
the season. Best of luck to all those who contribute to this activity.

The project which the Student Council undertook was to try to get a school 
ring instead of the class rings which we have had in the past. Representatives 
from three ring companies. Balfour, Murchison, and Bastian Bros., came to the 
school and showed the Student Council samples of rings. The Student Council 
had each company draw up a design for a school ring. An assembly was held 
and the rings were shown to the school. All pupils then voted on the ring, bin 
they have yet to decide which design to select.

AMERICAN LEGION PRIZE ESSAY 

On November 11, 1918, an armistice was signed by the great nations, 
bringing to a close the long and heartbreaking World War I. There was con- 
siderable amount of joy among us — the American people. There were tears shed 
by the more unfortunate who would not be able to see our loved ones return. 

But this was yet a temporary peace. For soon after came World War II, 
which threw our peace-living nation into a war as chaotic as the first. America 
stood behind its servicemen. The defence plants never were short of help; women 
joined the services to aid their country, and everyone boosted the morale of 
these men with letters of encouragement from home. 

This war came to an end also, and the United States emerged Victorious. 
With the outbreak of the Korean War, Americans repeated their war efforts, and 
this war ended with a truce. 

Yes, America is, in essence, a peace-loving nation, but a nation that is 
willing to sacrifice all for the rights of men over state, of God over men. 

Let us then look upon Armistice Day as a day of thanksgiving, a day of 
humble prayer, that we dwell in a land that has proved time and again that 
it is willing to fight for human equality so that some day this world will contain 
an everlasting peace and brotherhood of nations.

Choral Art Society". 

Best of luck to you in your part of the spring "Pops Concert".
